The Family’s All Here #GB20
You guys ready to get rolling?
My father. My hero. Nothing propels me more than the possibility of his pride.
Happy Birthday to the woman who changed my career. A generational voice and actual natural born writer. The brilliant Diablo Cody.
Hey little dude
What a special day to be the son of a brilliant storyteller and amongst so many inspiring Ghostbusters. #ghostbustersfanfest #gb20
Happy Mothers Day
New favorite shirt.
Meet the family. #GB20
I Love LA
Scramble the X-Wings!
Naked Panavision camera body. And the block it is cut from.
My brilliant sister @reitcatou is now on Netflix! She writes, directs, and stars (way to show dad and I how it’s done). It’s huge in Canada and been getting all kinds of awards. Watch Workin’ Moms this weekend! SO PROUD OF YOU!
Just leaving the office
For the teaser, @mybrokenglasses built a stencil from the original GB84 lettering in the Columbia Pictures archive, then shot it practically with smoke and light! #GB20
Finally got the keys to the car. #GB20

Wardrobe test, Tully. There’s a moment when @charlizeafrica first puts on the costume. It’s one of the last times I’ll see the seams. I’ll watch her finding her way into the role like she’s trying on the skin for the first time. And then, she disappears. Congratulations to my dearest friend and partner in crime on yet another HFPA nomination in her illustrious career. You make me feel luckier than I could ever explain. #goldenglobes
We plan, we plan, we plan... but the moments that become memorable are the ones that surprise us. A performance and a camera angle collide. @sara_paxton is descending an escalator and in one look back, shatters my heart. I turn to my script supervisor Sue and ask, “Did you see that?!”
The Front Runner started at Panavision, testing 16mm vs 35mm with two of my closest and oldest friends @ericsteelberg and @jblume123. The same small room we shot my first short film... and Eric was there twenty years ago as well. We grow together. We make each other better. @frontrunnermovie is the culmination of so many talented people working at the very top of their game. The costume, the production design, the music, the editing, the sound mixing, the background actors. This is the most technically complicated movie I’ve endeavored and it lives on the shoulders of the brilliant film crew I call my family.
Finding a partner in crime is almost impossible. Finding two feels like a miracle. Still smiling after one of the great screenwriting journeys of my life. The Front Runner team. Matt Bai and Jay Carson. Our film comes out in select theaters today!
We were five hours into the most expensive day of shooting on the whole film. Working out a crane shot that just wouldn’t behave. Dollars, minutes, and footage slipping through our fingers. My camera operator Matt Moriarty came up to me and said, “Hey brother, I don’t think this shot is in the voice of our movie. Let’s throw the camera on our shoulders and shoot this the way we’ve been doing everything else.” And I just hugged him. Films are made by families.
Up In The Air
The goal of The Front Runner was to make a movie in which the entire cast was on set every day, wired and armed with dialogue to talk over each other in a mess that resembled real life. No heroes. No villains. Just people trying to navigate a scandal.
Easy way to find your polling place! And please vote Tuesday. You can wait and see the movie Wednesday. Promise, I won’t be mad.
The first wardrobe test. Gary and Lee in the window. The Front Runner.
I just met Dr. Ruth!!! My heart might explode.
He probably made one of your favorite movies. He also taught me everything I know about storytelling. Happy Birthday Dad!
